Re: Re-Releasing The 3 Newest albums?

Uhm. Neither option works for me. :( I just want the fixes on AtEoT. I'm fine with the others -- not that I'd complain about a re-release, but I'd rather hope for Blind Guardian to focus on the important bits. "A Twist in the Myth" seems totally finished to me, I don't see anyone turning screws on i...

Re: Do you want fixed AtEoT-Tracks? (Contacting NB, updates)

I think I know what people mean on "Under the Ice", but someone who calls that a mistake must be more of an audiophile perfectionist than me, and I'm Kicchiri's lost brother. :twisted: Comparing that to what we're talking about in this thread is a little insulting.

Re: Do you want fixed AtEoT-Tracks? (Contacting NB, updates)

Oh the gods, it was not my intention to start a flamewar. But I'm fine with the result, since it shows it's not just me being some rare kind of audiophile.

Anyways, I will now e-mail NB production with a link to this thread. Maybe they'll say something.

Re: One of the possible solutions to eliminate errors

Fans can easily fix "Curse My Name", but for "Wheel of Time", a professional editor and a master source are probably required to do it right. I haven't heard of any better-sounding fan version. BTW, even though it's Microsoft-ish, I wouldn't care about the single version. That way, I'd also have it ...

Re: Do you want fixed AtEoT-Tracks? (Contacting NB, updates)

Okay, I've added the resonances at the end as a listed point. I still feel they're partially the intended sound, but the jitter (or whatever that is) is just too notable to be ignored. Doesn't sound clean and detailed like the rest. Still, it appears the users who would complain are a minority. Also...

Do you want fixed AtEoT-Tracks? (Contacting NB, updates)

I just called Nuclear Blast about the production issues on AtEoT. The result: they confirmed they will upload a fixed version of "Curse My Name", and they gave me an e-mail address to contact for further questions. Now, before I write an e-mail there, I want to ask everyone on their opinion about th...

Re: Godamn movie-makers :/

Movie maker OST choosers are mainstream loosers. IMO, there are many movies that would greatly profit from a Power Metal soundtrack. I believe it would even work on non-Metalheads. But mainstream gurus are so afraid of change, they always only make more of the same. Well, otherwise they wouldn't be ...

I would be satisfied if they just started producing mistake-free copies without announcing or acknowledging anything. As far as we can get our hands on fixed songs I'm good. By they way VandoiyDE, I have spectrograph analyzed also Wheel of Time in order to see what the frequency spectrum looks like...

If you look closely, BG has multiple styles, two of which have a lot of followers: the Imaginations dark speed metal style and the ANATO epic power metal style.

Re: ATEOT: We rate the songs

I haven't listened to most of them enough to give such an exact rating. But I can already say that "Wheel of Time" and "Curse My Name" (once the beep is edited out) get maximum score anyways. "Sacred Worlds" probably as well. Truly SONGS DIVINE! "A Voice in the Dark" is also damn good, but I think t...

Re: Ultra high beeping on "Curse My Name" 2:50 - 3:33

They obviously missed it. They had nobody in the studio who could hear it, and they never did visual checking on plots of the songs. This basically means two QC procedures failed or were omitted . Not exactly something to be proud of. The correct reaction now would be to make a fixed version from th...

I don't hear it anymore now. 8) As edited into the first post now, for me, an EQ editing only 0.01 octave linewidth does the job.

Re: Ultra high beeping on "Curse My Name" 2:50 - 3:33

I edited it out just now, using an EQ: -37 dB at 15624 Hz, width 0.02 octaves.

This is still a rough cut, maybe I'll make a sharper one

Edit: I did second version: -34 dB at 15624 Hz, width 0.01 octave.

See my first post for data on the beep, I edited it into the post.

IIRC, one of the posters in the other topic has offered to send people the edited file if they want the sound gone.
